Assisi restaurant recs
We are spending a day in Assisi. Would be very interested in any great choices for places to eat. We will be there on a Sunday.

We did find a small ristorante that was off the beaten path. We were definitely the only tourists there. It was the Ristorante Bar Anfiteatro on Via Anfiteatro Romano, 4 near the Porta Perlici. This is on the tall hill behind Santa Chiara. In this area was a tiny, ancient outdoor theatre and is now a lovely little neighborhood. I swear, I had the best Zuppo di vedure in my life. My son had penne with 4 cheeses and he ate more than I’ve ever seen. It was truly a treat. Find it if you can. (Tel 075 813 025).

I thought that the food and service were great at the resturant of the hotel Fontabella. Also a good experience in 1999 at the restaurant for hotel Umbra.<BR><BR>Best wishes,<BR><BR>Rex<BR>

And it's still good at the Umbra in 2002.

Pn the way up to the hemitage (eramo) above Assisi you will see a tavola calda called "Le Carcerelle" - if you can sit outside, it is a in wonderful position and serves excellent, simple, homemade food at a very reasonable price.
